The first part of the trail descends through pine, silver oak and rhododendron forests with marijuana plants all around until you cross a suspension bridge over the Sing Gompa Stream. Now, the path stretches at a flat level through some human settlements and mineral water factories up to Dhunche. It is a small town and the headquarters of Rasuwa district. Stay overnight at lodge.
